On average, a woman is killed by an intimate partner every 6 days. Domestic and family violence takes the life of one child every fortnight. 

When a woman leaves a violent partner, she loses so much more than a roof over her head - she risks her safety, faces relocation and loses access to financial stability, community, and support systems. 

Our goal is to raise $300,000 to deliver crucial programs for women that:
Provide holistic, wrap-around support to promote recovery
Provide material aid and essential items (like toiletries and food) when they are needed most
Build financial independence and pathways to employment
Nurture healing and well-being
Enrich children’s development
Prevent violence from happening in the first place


Gender-based violence takes a profound toll on women, children and communities. It impacts all of us. This is why we’re asking you to Walk for WAGEC so that women and children can walk away from violence.
